LETTERS FROM THE ARVY OF THE PO TOMAC. Soldiera.! Read, Reflect, and then Vote. Thousands of Pennsylvania soldiers have been furloughed to come home and vote. These fur loughs" have been granted only, or mainly to those who were supposed to be favorable to the election of Curtin. Those in power intend to make political as well as military machines of the rank and file—they intend to use them at the polls as well as in the fLeld. In short they mean to make the soldiers their instru ments to enslave the country. The policy of • Lincoln and Curtin is freedom to the negro— slavery to the white man. But onoe at home —once,in his 'election district—the ,soldier is free from restraint ; he le free to think and to act—and we ask him to do so. "Strike, but hear, me," were the words of a k greatAthenian I—lter,4, think, inform yourself before you 'vote, are the words we address to the brave soldiers of Pennsylvania. DAMP Or FIFTH ILISOHHTES, Near Culpepper, Va., Oct. 1,1863. To the Editors of the Patriot and Union :—A friend sent me a copy of the Harrisburg Tele graph, of the 25th ult., containing a letter from the Fifth Reserve, signed "W. Hayes Grier, First Sergeant Company A, Fifth Reserves," &c., &0., &c. > It is a little singular, that when a sneak wishes to tell an infamous falsehood or slander a decent man, he always selects the Hessian's pitper as the means of spreading his filth before the public. It is not necessary to make any response to Grier's nonsense about his former Democracy further than to state that he always was an outspoken Democrat up to a certain time— after a certain promotion bed been made; when he suddenly threw his principles to the winds and covered -himself with the Shoddy mantle. No one here thinks that the party has sustained any loss by the change i but the excuse that it was done through patriotic int): tivea is too absurd to be covered by a shoddy blanket. He nest tells the Hessian that Curtin "has done all in his power to aid the Reserves."— The Reserve Corps was organized in pursuance of a law of the Pennsylvania Legislature. The men composing the division had all ached to be taken into the service of the country un der the three months' call, but the bungling policy of the War Department prevented that; hence, as soon as this law authorising a re serve corps in Pennsylvania was passed, these same companies, which had been previously tendered, Were accepted, and organized into what has since been known as the Pennsylva nia Res'erve Corps, for the defence of Pennsyr vania soil. I have never been able to see what part the Governor took in their organization that should entitle him to the vast amount of honor he claims. But if you will refer to the files of the Hes sian's paper of May and June, 1861, as well as to your own paper of that date, you will learn something about the condition of the Re serves while they lay in camp under the ex clusive care and control—and under the very nose—of this patent "soldier's friend." The appearance of the men in Camp Curtin was a disgrace to the . State. Any citmen of Harris burg who visited the camp during this period will confirm this. Many of the men ran bare= .headed and bare-footed for weeks. Company commanders had to have an "inspection" every evening, to see how many of their men were fit, or unfit, to appear on "dress parade" before the ladiee-=the "naked" being Bent into their tents until the parade was over. It is a disgraceful fact. that not a stitch of clothing wag issued to the eoldiere of the Btiektail and Fifth regiments until they had been turned , over to the General Government and had re ceived orders to march for Cumberland, New Creek, SLo., nor did they receive a cent of pay until after they had left the State. Their whole term of "State service" was spent in a state of raggedness and filth almost . as bad as that of Libby prison. Governor Curtin—the "eel dier's friend"—was appealed to in vain for even a few pairs of shoes for men who were drilling on their bare feet. His answer to such ap peals was, that nothing could be issued to the men until after they had been mustered in; yet he persistently refused to have them mus tered. • • From all the accounts published in the pa pent' of both parties, the men encamped in other parts of the State fared no better—perhaps worse. The loudest complaints came from Easton, I believe. I have no means of knowing what may have been the inward emotions , of the Governor to wards the division, since he handed it over to the General Governinent. They were perhaps of the most paternal nature. But, if so, what heve they amounted to ? The Reserves have always marched when the army marched, and fought when the army fought—and sometimes fought alone. Our sick and wounded are with those of other divisions in the different hospi tals of the country. Our dead lie side by side with those of all the States of the Union. The number of men now in the division, *ben com pared with the number in it then, is sad evi dence that, if the Governor is sincere in his professions of friendship,his influence at Wash ington is small indeed I There was a kind of a vote taken in the Fifth regiment a few weeks ago. I never knew 'what the result was until it was published by this "First Bergeant;" &o. The Democrats almost to a man declined to give any serious answer when the question was asked them. But I will state, for this young up,-start's benefit, that he has one company on his list as being unani mous for Curtin which contains a majority of four for Woodward. . •If the other companies of the regiment, his own included, were allowed to vote this fall, they would vote in a manner that would make even the "First Sergeant' of Company A" ashamed of his vile slanders on better.men and braver soldiers than himself. The "fighting men" of the Fifth do not think it is any part of en officers duty to q teetion them as to their political prinoiples ~• neither do they entrnat their opinions on such matters to those whose business it is to report every idle, ord spoken in the company at the officers' quarters. • The writer cif tbik like Grier, came to the war a Democrat ; like him, he threw down the stick and rule " and took up a musket; but I have certainly seen nothing during two years and a half of army life to cause me to , forsake the party now when it is engaged in such a gloriods clause e,s the preservedot of our Con.. stitution and laws.

What a proud day it will be for ns a ll when Judge Woodward takes the seat now Curtin ! occupied by Andy , Maxim, CAMP NEAR RAPID ANN RIVIIR, October lot, 1863. Editors Patriot and Union:—Last winter, while lying along the banks of the Rappahan nock, I wrote you respecting the opinion of the army in regard to the removal of M'Clel lan, and now I will try and write you regard ing the mariner the "powers that be" are ma king a political machine of the Army of the Potomac, for the advancement of Andy Curtin. It is but a few days ago since there was an election held here to elect a Governor, , for the State of Pennsylvania. We all kid* that that vote will never be Muted, and the query is, why is this vote cast ? I will tell you. The cause of Curtin at home is desperate, and un less some great card is played soon ie will be consigned to private life. The card they yet hold is, the effect the soldier vote will hate on those at home. This is a deep game, but Ido not think it will win. New let me tell you how this " soldier. vote " was obtained : The officers of each company have a list of their men ; they go to each personally and ask him who he will vote for ; if for Curtin, all right; if for Woodward, he is told he can vote for who he pleases, but if he votes for Woodward he can never expect any favor from those who wear shoulder straps. Again, he is told that Woodward voted against allowing the SOlditre the right of voting; whereas the truth is he only decided on the constitutionality of the law. With such arguments as these, is it any wonder men are brought to think that Curtin is the man ? Let a man vote for Woodward, and he is given to understand that his life in the army will be anything but pleasant. 0 ain't thie a manly game ? Ain't it a glorious privilege to be servants for such leaders ? Our ' cause may be. a noble one—but there is little of the true nobility in those who lead us. I voted for George W. Woodviard, and I never expect a favor while lam in the army. lem a soldier—l am a. Democrat, and I will never yield my conscience to any men, or set of po litical demagogues. I have no favors to , ask— I have never asked one. I may have a hard life, but there may be a good time coming. I will trust in the future, and I know there is a noble and true band who are with me. I may fall on the field of battle, but I am ever, till my latest breath, a friend of the Union and a Democrat. I may be called a Copperhead, I may be called a traitor, but if I am one now I will live and die one. Oar first duty is the one we owe our God, the next the one we owe our country. My friends at home are called traitors, and I can stand it ; and I look to that noble band who are enduring all men can for the sake of principle, to yet bring deliverance to the coun try. lem for "the Union as it Was, " and I am•for "the Constitution as it ie." Let lying, slanderous Abolition journals do their worst— let them laugh at a set of men called soldiers, break up Democratic meetingsbut soon, too soon for them, will come the reckoning. Demo crats, be on your guard, be ever ready for any emergency. There ie a game working for your destruction. You must not oleo) now, or you will awake in chains. Your country calls for help—the good old life-boat is in the hands of those who would destroy it—but remember, the Union must be preserved, and you must be its peservers. Stand firm, falter not. You are about to be successful at last. Be true to yourselves, be true to your country, and pos terity will bless you. You have an interest in your country's welfare nearer, truer, deeper, than all mankind beside. You know no North, South, East or West—you know only your country. You are for peace—but only such as will _unite, not divide the country. The twin partners of iniquity, Abolitionism and Seces sion' are both your enemies, and you will yet pink them into a grave from which no political resurrection will ever raise them. Thou with Your might, your heart and hand, ga into the great work, determined to win. Raise high your good old hibkoriee,.ruti up, the stars and stripes, and let there be inscribed' its silken folds the names of Woodward and Lowrie. 0 ! that I had the eloquence of a Clay,.to warn you of your danger. The sun shines brightly now, the clouds are fast disappearing in the political horizon.— Democrats, you know your duty ; fail not to do it. Let not threats deter you in your onward march to victory. Be firm—work earneetly— and when the second Tuesday of October ar rives, let it find you ready. If force is used to keep you from the polls, or to cheat you out of your vote—force must be poet with force. Let not the election in Pennsylvania be controlled the same as it was in Kentucky. You have rights, and you must maintain them: Then, with three cheers for Woodward and Lowrie, and three times three for the Union and the Con., , stitution, go in for victory and for right. A PRIVATE IN THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC. THE PRESIDENT'S PROMISE& Mr. Lincoln's letter to the Springfield (Illi nois) Convention, which is now being widely published and flatteringly endorsed by the Republican press, contains the following sen tence " Negroes, like other people, act upon mo tives. Why should they do anything for us, if we will do nothing for them ?—lf they stake their lives for us, they must be prompted by the atrongotit motives—even the promise of freedom ; and, the promise being made, must be kept." As he has such a strong desire , to keep his "promise" with negaoes, we respectfully • call his attention to the following "promise"-made `by him to the white men of the country in his Inaugural Address : do but quote from my tipeeohett when I declare that ' f have no purpose, directly or indi rectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I BELIEVE I RAVE' NO LAWFUL RIGHT TO DO t=o, AND I HAVE NO INCLINA LION TO DO BO.! Those who nontibated and elected me did so with full. knowledgerthet I had made this and many elm . ilar declarations, and had never recanted them. "I now reiterate these sentiments ;And in doing so, I only press upon the public attention the most conclusive evidence of which the ease is susceptible, that the property, peace and secu rity of no section are to be in any wise Milan , gered by the now incoming administration. I add, too, that all the protection which, con eistently, with.the Constitution and laws, can be given, will be cheerfully given to all the States when lawfully demanded, for whatever . cause —asuheerfully to one section' as to ano ther * Lir take the official oath to day with no 9nent4l reservations, and with no Irma's to construe the Constitution and laws by any hypocritical rules." We trust that the President will lose no time in giving an explanation why he has vio lated this pledge so solemnly made to white w en, and yet holds fast to the one given to the Negro in the Emancipaton Prosismadou. a “promise" to negroes i 'really more binding than one to white tnon't—Ezehave.
